Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This Finnish drama paints a non-judgmental portrait of three misanthropic, drug-addicted and alienated Helsinki teens who try to get out of trouble with a local drug dealer. Ippe, Papu and Mia come from troubled, broken homes. They rebel by sporting colorfully dyed hair and body piercing and by acting like creeps. Ippe and Papu are in trouble with Kalle, a pusher who has been providing them with sample drugs to pass out to peers in hopes of getting them addicted. Instead, the two have been using the drugs themselves. Kalle demands they repay him quickly or else, so the two plan to get to Stockholm to score some LSD, which they will smuggle back via Ippe's mother, who works in a bar aboard the ferry. Mia joins the scheme after leaving her mother to move in with Ippe.
